I am a third-year student studying Mathematics at the University of Surrey and have always had an interest in wildlife photography. A few years ago I raised £500 for the RSPB by selling greetings cards with my photos on and won the Thomson Habitats Photography Competition.

Glorious weather today! We visited Ballindalloch Castle in the morning, Loch Eileen in the afternoon and the Speyside Wildlife Hide in the evening. We got there at 20:30, waited for almost 2 hours before seeing at least 6 badgers, then, when we were 5 minutes from leaving we saw the Pine Marten at 23:40. It stayed feeding for 10 minutes - less than 2 metres from our hide! Well worth the wait!
Total number of species of bird seen or heard after day 5: 73
